Forgot to mention:
 Last summer the only trip we took was up to AR to see Kendell.  That was a horrible trip. Guess I should say a horrible drive and hotel.  Elliott was on call and with 3 kids we had to stop pretty often.  Elliott had to find internet in one little town on the way up there so it took us like an hour before we were on the road again.  Then the hotel was nasty.  There were 2 inch long ants, spiders, white trash people and a bloody fight.  Needless to say we won’t stay at a Red Roof again. And diarea kids pooping all over the bathroom. Gross! It was great to see the Becks and the new addition.  It was a great blessing.  Since it has been so hot we have been spending a lot of days at water parks and pools.  We got this awesome gazebo for our deck to cool us down and we have a window a/c unit in our tv room to help.

Elliott applied for Border Patrol. We went down to Houston Sept 13 for him to take the test. We stayed in the condo and the kids and I had fun, while Elliott studied.  We went swimming and tried to watch a movie at the theater there, we played games and had ice cream.  While he was taking the test we went to hang out with Jenny and her family.  It was fun and nice to see them. Elliott’s grandmother found out she had stage 4 stomach cancer and only had weeks to live.  Her memory was like Big Mom’s for about a year. As soon as they found this out, his family made funeral plans.
